Common Complications of Fracture Injuries
Following an accident/injury could involve a variety of different implications. The risk of complications varies greatly with the severity and location of the fracture, quality of treatment and care, and the complexity of the fracture.
Here is a list of some common bone fracture complications that can follow a bone fracture:
- Nerve and tissue damage: A bone fracture can cause permanent damage to the surrounding tissues, skin, and nerves leading to chronic nerve pain without proper care.
- Respiratory Problems: When someone who suffers a fracture in the chest or ribs, there is a risk of developing breathing problems such as a painful cough, bruising or sharp pain in the chest while breathing.
- Improper bone Healing: In some cases, the initial injury may not cause damage, but the healing process does. If the healing process is delayed or cared for improperly, you may experience chronic pains, limping and even fever.
- Vascular damage: Some car accident victims who suffer a fracture may experience vascular damage such as disruption of blood supply to the femoral artery. If left untreated this type of injury can be fatal.
These are some of the complications that can follow a bone fracture after an accident out of many. Some of these are serious and can cause permanent damage if not treated promptly. No matter the case, your health is number one priority. Following any fracture, make sure to see a health care specialist as soon as you can.
What Should You Do in Case of a Fracture?
It is very important that you consult a doctor immediately. The next thing you should do is retain the legal counsel of a knowledgeable California fracture injury attorney.
A California bone fracture attorney at Krasney Law will ask you questions to find out how your fracture injury happened, the location and what you were doing there and any medical treatments. Be honest with your lawyer. If you have access to witnesses, newspaper articles or accident reports, gather them and provide them to the attorney.
What Not Do In Case of a Bone Fracture
If you encounter someone at the scene who was involved in an accident that resulted in your fractured bones, be cooperative and courteous. But do not apologize or admit to any guilt. If you do you may be conceding you are liable.
Talk only to your bone fracture lawyer, the police and your own insurance company about the accident. If another driver’s insurance company calls you, refer them to your bone fracture attorney or your own insurance company.
What To Do After You Go Home
When you go home or soon after, contact your insurance company, and don’t lie or they may deny coverage if you’re caught. Obtain a copy of any police report.
If the fracture injury occurred in an automobile or on a bicycle, photograph your vehicle and any damage to it. It can help a case to show the vehicle before the accident, too.
Make sure to record visits to doctors and other medical practitioners, the drugs and treatments they prescribe and what you spent on them. Pain and suffering are harder to quantify and qualify, but take notes on how you feel physically and mentally because of the impact of the injury.
Also write down all time lost at work, note what activities at work or home that you can no longer participate in, and tell how the aftermath of the injury has affected your family life.
When Can It Be Considered Neglect?
A person who injures another party may be considered negligent when he acts in a careless and thoughtless manner. Negligence comes in two forms: when the defendant failed to do something that would have prevented the accident, or when the defendant did something he should not have done.
California law requires drivers and property owners to be careful, and they may be considered negligent when they fail to act carefully. A person bringing a lawsuit must prove he was injured through the defendant’s actions, and that he suffered injuries or losses.
